“The Dark Days”

Featured Video Play Icon

“The Dark Days” is the third film in artist Thomas Blanchard’s N-UPRISING series. Like its siblings, this film features plants and insects, along with creeping — and sometimes overwhelming — fluid flows. The vivid colors of the orchids here make an uncomfortable juxtaposition with the air raid horns, sirens, and sounds of war that make up the soundtrack. It works well as a metaphor for life these days, where some of us can enjoy the new and the beautiful while others are caught up in war and suffering. (Image and video credit: T. Blanchard)
